Carole Tauber Raizman, East Boothbay, a longtime chief proofreader and editorial assistant at the Boothbay Register and the Wiscasset Newspaper, died at her home in the early morning December 4 following a long illness. She was 69.

A member of an East Boothbay family whose roots go back at least five generations, to the days when the local shipyards were building coastal schooners, Raizman was born at St. Andrews Hospital and moved to Brooklyn, N.Y. where she was graduated from Midwood High School. She later was graduated from the famed Pratt Institute there.

She worked at IBM in Poughkeepsie N.Y. as a computer aided design artist and later moved back to East Boothbay where she lived in the house her family had occupied since before the Civil War. She worked as an editorial assistant and chief proofreader at the Boothbay Register and the Wiscasset Newspaper for more than 14 years. 

She was a member of the Order of the Eastern Star, a volunteer at the Boothbay Harbor Memorial Library and a lover of cats and books. She was predeceased by her mother, Edith Tauber and a sister, Leah Vegvary.

Survivors include her two sons, Daniel Raizman of East Boothbay and Steven Raizman of Poughkeepsie, N.Y. Other survivors include her daughter-in-law Rubyann and two grandchildren Aaron and Hannah.

Other survivors include a brother, Philip Tauber of East Boothbay and his wife Charon and another brother, Richard Tauber and his wife Vida of Manalapan, N.J. Former husband Sam Raizman of Poughkeepsie, N.Y., also survives.

In accordance with her wishes, there will be no funeral services.
